First of all, from the familiar Cinebench R23 rendering operation, Intel Alder Lake CPU single-core performance is really a big win, leading rival products of the same level by at least 20%. In terms of multi-core, Core i9-12900KF is equivalent to AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, Core i7-12700KF is faster than Ryzen 9 5900X, and Core i5-12600KF is faster than Ryzen 7 5800X.

In the video encoding test, Core i9-12900KF is faster than Ryzen 9 5950X in X264 and X265 HD, but it lost in the HWBOT X265 test. Core i7-12700KF has similar performance to Ryzen 9 5900X, and Core i5-12600KF has similar performance to Ryzen 7 5800X.

However, in the PCMark test, Alder Lake CPUs all lost to rival products at the same price, and even lost to the previous generation of Rocket Lake CPUs. However, due to the early days, it is temporarily impossible to confirm that these tests are performed on Windows 10 or Windows 11, and the support of PCMark for new processors.

Of course, since the product has not yet been officially released, there are still some variables in the final performance. But if the engineering version samples have such excellent performance, we can really look forward to the days when Intel will overtake its opponents. After all, competition can make progress.
